Question about 2005 Chevrolet Uplander
Some pistons have to be turned and pushed at same time like a regular bolt, they have like thread inside, just go to autozone and ask for the loan tool program and get a tool to do it they have it there and then they will reimburse your deposit after you done with it

If the caliper has a solid face with a nothch or notches in it the you will need to use a "lisle adjuster' (Costs about $13.00, I got mine at O'Reilly's) that looks liks a cube with different protrusions on each side of the cube. Also, each side has a square hole for a 3/8" drive socket.
On my 2005 Uplander, I had to put the caliper back on the mounting braket to collapse the piston, and then take it off again to put in the new brake pads. NOTE: this will not work unless you remove the rotor first.
